Sky News will broadcast its fifth marginal seat debate, the Sky News People’s Forum: Longman, on Wednesday May 11 at 2pm AEST, featuring Liberal National Party MP Terry Young and Labor’s Rebecca Fanning.

Live from Queensland, the one-hour forum will be hosted by Sky News AM Agenda Host Laura Jayes and feature questions from the most important people in the campaign, the voters. The debate will be broadcast live on Sky News and available to live stream at and across News Corp Australia news websites including and The Courier-Mail.

Longman was a surprise pickup for Scott Morrison at the 2019 federal election – but on a margin of just 3.3% – it is the Coalition’s most vulnerable seat in Queensland. Both Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese know a favourable result in Longman will be crucial in the overall race for a majority, but both major parties are polling low primary votes in the Sunshine State.

The third was held in the mining region of Hunter between Labor’s Dan Repacholi, the National Party’s James Thomson and One Nation’s Dale McNamara and the fourth between Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and Climate 200-backed Independent candidate Dr Monique Ryan in the Victorian seat of Kooyong.
